Robotic surgery: urology

The days of week-long hospital stays for prostate and urinary surgeries are long gone. Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery now can achieve the same surgical results as conventional open operations, while allowing patients to recover faster and get back to normal activity sooner. With robotic-assisted surgery through tiny incisions, patients are up and out of bed the day of their surgery, and back to light activity at home the day after. That isn’t possible with open surgeries, which require large, painful cuts through muscle and tissue.

Robotic-assisted surgery is a superior approach by other measures, as well: patients tend to develop pneumonia and blood clots less often, have less bleeding, require fewer transfusions, and have fewer complications in general.
